Dear Oscar, what's the big deal? 

Every year there is tons of hype over the Oscars   Yes, millions, if not billions, of dollars are spent by people who go to the movies every year.  Movies are a great source of entertainment, but I don't go to a lot of movies in the theater.  I usually wait for them to come out on DVD or watch them on TV.  I think one of the reasons that I'm not into the Oscars is because the majority of the films I would never be interested in seeing.

Life of Pi, Amour, Silver Linings Playbook.  No interest.  I also find it hard to believe that soooo many people are into these movies.  The Oscars are a great promotional vehicle to get the word out about movies, especially since a lot of them are not "mainstream".

Don't get me wrong, I get the artistic value, I guess its just not my cup of tea.

With that, I ask you...
